media: uvcvideo: Fix pixel format change for Elgato Cam Link 4K
The Elgato Cam Link 4K HDMI video capture card reports to support three different pixel formats, where the first format depends on the connected HDMI device. ``` $ v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --list-formats-ext ioctl: VIDIOC_ENUM_FMT Type: Video Capture [0]: 'NV12' (Y/CbCr 4:2:0) Size: Discrete 3840x2160 Interval: Discrete 0.033s (29.970 fps) [1]: 'NV12' (Y/CbCr 4:2:0) Size: Discrete 3840x2160 Interval: Discrete 0.033s (29.970 fps) [2]: 'YU12' (Planar YUV 4:2:0) Size: Discrete 3840x2160 Interval: Discrete 0.033s (29.970 fps) ``` Changing the pixel format to anything besides the first pixel format does not work: ``` $ v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --try-fmt-video pixelformat=YU12 Format Video Capture: Width/Height : 3840/2160 Pixel Format : 'NV12' (Y/CbCr 4:2:0) Field : None Bytes per Line : 3840 Size Image : 12441600 Colorspace : sRGB Transfer Function : Rec. 709 YCbCr/HSV Encoding: Rec. 709 Quantization : Default (maps to Limited Range) Flags : ``` User space applications like VLC might show an error message on the terminal in that case: ``` libv4l2: error set_fmt gave us a different result than try_fmt! ``` Depending on the error handling of the user space applications, they might display a distorted video, because they use the wrong pixel format for decoding the stream. The Elgato Cam Link 4K responds to the USB video probe VS_PROBE_CONTROL/VS_COMMIT_CONTROL with a malformed data structure: The second byte contains bFormatIndex (instead of being the second byte of bmHint). The first byte is always zero. The third byte is always 1. The firmware bug was reported to Elgato on 2020-12-01 and it was forwarded by the support team to the developers as feature request. There is no firmware update available since then. The latest firmware for Elgato Cam Link 4K as of 2021-03-23 has MCU 20.02.19 and FPGA 67. Therefore correct the malformed data structure for this device. The change was successfully tested with VLC, OBS, and Chromium using different pixel formats (YUYV, NV12, YU12), resolutions (3840x2160, 1920x1080), and frame rates (29.970 and 59.940 fps).
